Bergen and Strasbourg, 9th July 2014
The European Science Foundation (ESF) and the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) are pleased to announce that the transfer of the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) to NSD has been completed and ERIH PLUS is now accessible at the NSD website: http://erihplus.nsd.no/.
Following the memorandum of understanding signed in January 2014, NSD will now operate the new reference index for scientific journals in the humanities and social sciences. Our goal is to enhance the global visibility of high-quality research in the humanities and social sciences across Europe, and to facilitate access to research journals published in all European languages. The ERIH PLUS index encompasses the original ERIH lists, which initially only covered the humanities disciplines. The new reference index is called ERIH PLUS, in order to indicate that the list has been extended to also include social science disciplines.
